Gregory Porter / Donald Smith / Mansur Scott / Paul Zauner's Blue Brass - Great Voices of Harlem album download

An album produced by Austrian pig farmer come jazz fest organiser Paul Zauner featuring almost a dozen jazz standards with Gregory Porter on the bill. Sounds interesting and worth a blind purchase. We get a good start with Gregory Porter’s version of Moanin. His voice has the usual quality, the rhythm section is carrying it well and the piano is tight. This raises expectations for the rest of the album. I think it’s Zauner himself who is the low light here. By now I am convinced that this release goes into my For Sale pile but we have one more Gregory Porter track: The Livingston & Evans composition Mona Lisa. It’s OK, with (as the sleeve notes say) a gauzy arrangement but I wouldn’t go as far and quote gorgeous alto flute nor astral sprinklings. The closing track is Horace Silver’s Song For My Father but unfortunately, the honors of killing off this album goes again to Mansur Scott.

Great Voices Of Harlem showcases the vocal talents of three most fascinating jazz singers-Gregory Porter, Donald Smith and Mansur Scott. Ably supported by Paul Zauner's Blue Brass, the vocalists put their very individual stamps on some classic songs. The result is a stylish, classy, recording. Smith-the brother of Lonnie Liston Smith-and Scott have been around a lot longer but without attracting so much attention. The album bursts into life with Porter's soulful take on "Moanin. The song also gives trombonist Zauner and the rest of his band a chance to shine-it's obvious from the start that the players are not only sympathetic to the needs of the vocalists but also capable of some fine ensemble and solo performances. Martin Reiter's punchy piano solo on this track is just one shining example.
